Review: Z Pizza - Pepperoni Pizza

I'm a simple guy and the pepperoni slice is the standard to which I hold all pizza places. While out in Upland, WC mentioned that she remembered Z Pizza being good so I decided to try it.

The chain started out of Laguna Beach, California and touts its premium ingredients such as "award-winning skim mozzarella from Wisconsin, certified organic tomato sauce, MSG-free pepperoni, additive-free sausage, and fresh produce." Basically stuff I don't really care about.

I'd say the pizza slice ($2.65) was about average, nothing special, about the same as you'd get in your standard mom-and-pop pizzeria. I didn't care for the sauce too much, it was tart but didn't have that slight sweetness that I like or the taste of oregano for that matter. The crust was doughy and a bit on the chewy side. All-in-all it was just "okay" for me.

Z Pizza does offer the more Californian-type frou-frou pizzas popularized by Wolfgang Puck and CPK. WC was tempted to try such offerings, which ranged from the most notably named "Berkeley Soy Veggie Cheese" to the California standard "ZBQ" (BBQ Chicken Pizza), but decided that it was pricey compared to her (and my) favorite: Bollini's (see her write up on Bollini's here).
